Oh dear, has it really been that long since I have posted here? I do apologize.
I have to say that I really thought that blogs were a dying thing, what with facebook, Instagram, pinterest and flicker to name but a few forms of social media... its all a little too confusing and just a tad overwhelming for many in our already crazy, fast paced life to try to keep up with.
I do have an art page on facebook www.facebook.com/kristinhydeart and I am on pinterest for those that wish to follow me.
Meanwhile... I continue to work full time which brings much travel with it, however as always, I do love to create when ever time allows.
I am still creating my resined hearts and love to paint as well. I am now represented by two galleries and two retail outlets with the promise of more opportunity in the wings as soon as I can keep up with the 'supply and demand'.
I love colour, it awakens my soul, it makes my heart sing and I love that my work makes people happy.
But ....What am I up to now?...
For the last eight months I have been Felting...a new passion that I have become addicted to. I call it 'painting with wool'. I love laying out the wool and creating a piece of beautiful wearable art.
As we here in the southern hemisphere head into autumn, I look forward to once again wrapping myself in one of my 'creations'. The colour palette of the beautiful various wools and fibers I use provides a range of endless possibilities. The warm and bright colour to bring a piece of cheeriness and warmth to an otherwise gloomy cold winters day.
I love that my creations have so far found their way to various parts of the US(including New York), England and New Zealand. I sincerely want to say 'Thank you' to those customers for their support.
I love that people stop me in the street and ask where did I get my beautiful scarf from and ask me if they can 'touch' it?... oh that gives me so much pleasure and makes me feel so humble.
I also hope to one day expand my creativity into slippers and hats.
Meanwhile I'll leave you with these photos to tease you with just a few of my Nuno felted scarves.
